    Question Which G's have home time in all modes?

    …or in MOST modes.


    I love this feature in a G-Shock. One could say I’m obsessed with this feature. I love using the STW or CDT and having the time readily available. This is the main reason I absolutely LOVE my GW9200 Riseman. And this is the reason that prevents my GD100MS1 from being my favorite G. I love everything about my GD except for the fact that it does not have home time in ANY mode. I mean it has 4 time zones and WT but no home time even in those modes. It fits so comfortably, has nice wrist presence, I love the color combo, I love the design, I love the big easy-to-push buttons and I’d marry the red/orange Dual LED Super Illuminator. I think the only thing holding the GD100MS1 back from being perfect is the lack of home time in all modes. That and maybe a 5th button.


    So my question is - are there any other G-Shocks that have home time in STW, CDT, ALM and WT (if it has it, which it should)? This “feature” is not listed in the Casio specs. I’m interested in the G7900MS-1A for maybe my next G. Does this one have it?


    Other criteria:

    Positive display. Negatives are a no-no.

    Minimum 24hr 1/100sec. STW, 24hr CDT 1min. settable (would like 1sec. settable)
    WT or Multi-Time Zones preferred

    Prefer battery but will consider solar (atomic is ok but not needed).

    Size: I have a DW5600 and a GX56 so somewhere in between.


    If only the GD100MS1 had home time in all modes, I'd excuse the lack of the dedicated light button and it would replace my GW9200 as my favorite. Some say the display is pink(ish) but to me it is more copper-toned... kinda matches my olive-toned skin.

    Yep, I have the DW5600, DW6900 and DW9052. These have home time in STW and CDT modes.

    Looking to get other models though.

    GWX-5600/8900 and of course all ana-digis (one reason I'm a fan of those). The GWX-5600/8900 only have a 1 hr STW however. Most (if not all) Protreks display current time in CDT and STW mode.

    Cheers, Sedi

    The GDF-100 has home time in all modes, and it has similar features as the Riseman. This watch is not solar, which you had listed, but it is similar to the GD100MS1 with respect to size and feel with the features of the Riseman. That's the best suggestion I could give with these two watches.

    The G9300 looks promising. Wish it wasn't so expensive. Frogman is too rich for my blood.

    I have seen these before and thought to myself "these are pretty unique looking". Thanks for the suggestion. I'll keep these in mind for sure. The price is right too ($100 USD).

    The PAW1500 has been on my "list" for a while now. Never really thought seriously about it since I always considered the Suunto Core or Vector to be superior ABC+T watches. May have to look at this one again. But it is a bit on the pricey side like the G9300.
